Many herbal remadies can have very severe interactions with cardiac medications, antiseuzure medications, psychiatric medications and/or bloodthinners to name a few classes of drugs. They are not harmless and like everything thing else, are either metabolized via the liver or kidneys. Herbs can effect the metabolism of other drugs taken concomitantly with them as well as is known.

Sara Chana was a lactation consultant years ago and save the life of my newborn granddaughter by diagnosing a breastfeeding issue. (Pediatrician was clueless)

Just because something grows on the ground and is natural it does not mean it has no side effects.

Recovering cancer patient

#3 is the voice of reason. Had I listened to these people I wouldn’t be alive today. Diagnosed with cancer, didn’t want chemo so saw a “specialist” who pumped me with an expensive and useless concoction of various herbal and alternative treatments. Went straight to stage 4 in under 2 months. Started chemo and was in remission after 4 treatments. Chemo may not be fun but it sure beats dying. True story I promise you. And there are so many stories just like mine. Only not signing my name to protect the children

Always ask a medical doctor for anything regarding healing.

long overdue, thankyou Sarah Chana for helping. People don’t realize that starting with conventional drugs may sometimes be necessary, but often times can be dealt with by using dietary or herbal (etc) intervention and sometimes avoiding the use of the meds. My husband codes medical records and there is a term known in the profession which should be known to all, which everyone should know about:

Food over medicine

Food over medicine

I’m all for trying natural remedies whenever possible- but before trying anything- people should really try tweaking their diet. So many of the issues we have these days is from eating out, eating pesticides, hydrogenaed foods etc. Being “natural” is not all or nothing- if a women mamash is suffering from postpartum- it might not be possible to fix a chemical imbalance in the brain with herbs- it’s a chemical imbalance of the brain that needs attention of a trained professional. think Sara Chana means well, but she’s often takes an all or nothing “natural” approach and this, in my… Read more »

Why anyone would listen to this instead of an accredited Dr is asking for trouble. These fads come and go. How many kids have hearing issues because of so called remedies?

Back to the Jungle

Please, note that tradicional medicine is basically herbalism thoroughly studied where the actual medical elements are isolated, copied and the right amount put into a pill. Herbalism is just a trendy thing that basically puts you back some 1000 years in the past. It is basically just good for who sell the herbs, the person might be well intentioned however thinking that taking a 5 month correspondence course on herbs can bypass the experience of modern science it is just so naive to say it the least.

Homeopathy no long covered in UK.
Guest
Homeopathy no long covered in UK.

Yes, at long last the UK looked at the data and found as has been known for 75-100 years that homeopathy is no better then placebo and is no longer covered by the medical system in Britain. No study has ever found homeopathy to be any better then a sugar pill. Learn more go to quackwatch.com

What a load of quackery. I am mortified that my community is so ignorant and gullible. “Oh look its natural, it must be great!” I have nothing against this woman, she clearly means no harm, but she is also illiterate when it comes to medicine. Homeopathy is a well known joke. It is literally water. I think its time for the citizens of crown heights to be taught a basic class in biology and chemistry.

CAREFULL!

Many, including close relatives of people distributing these “natural remedies” have been close to death’s door due to these unsupported treatments.

Not into natural But!
Guest
Not into natural But!

I was helped tremendously by taking remedies for an issue that the Drs were ready to do surgery for.
I’m actually quite the sceptic but didn’t want to run to have surgery. I’m eternally grateful that the remedies have changed my life and kept this problem under control, for years already!!

Like anything else you should ask someone who’s well read and not just do things yourself.

Calm down

Calm down

It works.
The end.
Anyone in medical school is drinking the cool-aid that synthetic prescriptions that mimic the natural remedies Hashem created is somehow better for you despite the myriad of side effects.
Haters will hate, scoffers will scoff, while those that seek healing will find it in the Aibishters natural treasures

It works?
Guest
It works?

Some things work, this is true. However there is a huge gulf between taking herbs to keep you calm, or treating exzema and taking herbs to treat cancer. The modern search for a treatment for cancer is well over 100 years old and beyond and has basically still not been found. If herbs were the answer oncologists would have been out of business years and years ago. The only thing that works so far is to poison the cancer, and some of that is from the natural world like (the original) vincristine, but it’s all a form of chemotherapy, i.e.… Read more »

We have antibiotics, antivirals, vaccines, dental medicine, advanced imaging, antisepsis, chemotherapy and radiation for cancer and hence the longest lifespan since biblical times.

Placebo works 20% of the time
Guest
Placebo works 20% of the time

The placebo effect is very strong which is why once modern medicine and statistical analysis came about we were able to see what really works and what does not. Homeopathy is no better than placebo in every study ever done. Yes, for a mild issue 1 in 5 will definatly report feeling somewhat better but if you a serious problem you could wake up dead as they say in Texas. Stay away from fake medicine. The Rebbe went to Dr. Weiss, and Dr. Resnick who were double boarded and triple boarded physicians who trained at world class institutions. Our Rebbe… Read more »
